New fan for CPU liquid cooler radiator

Matthew Graham
 Share

The fan I currently have on my cooler’s radiator has started to make a weird noise, and I was looking to replace it. However, a regular case fan won’t work as it won’t plug into the place on the mother board that says cpu fan. Are there any fans I can buy that will work for this?

Brand and model of your current AIO?

Why not, what's different?

Nah, get Arctic P12s or P14s according to your rad size, 3 packs are super cheap and they work great

The speed of the fan will increase when the cpu warms up to cool it down, but if it is just seen by the computer as a regular case fan it might cause the cpu to heat up

I use a case fan on my CPU cooler, plug it into the CPU_FAN header, & also have two other fans daisy-chained to it & they work just like an CPU fan would. Any PWM fan that can be plugged into the CPU_FAN header will react to temp changes.
